Abortion had the dubious distinction again in 2021 of being the world’s leading killer .
According to Worldometer , a web site that publishes data from the World Health Organization , 42.6 million babies were slaughtered in their mother’s womb last year .
Deaths from cancer were significantly lower at approximately 8 million while the widely-hyped coronavirus came in a distant third at 3.5 million lives .
And these figures do not include abortifacient drugs or at-home abortions through prescriptions available on demand .
Voice of the Family estimates legalized abortion has claimed more human beings ( two billion in the last 30 years alone ) than all the wars and international conflicts throughout recorded history .
Clearly , the mother’s womb supposedly the safest place in the universe is statistically the most dangerous .
Abortion promoted by well-funded extremists and enforced by government is far beyond the capacity of the pro-life movement to defeat on its own .
It’s a spiritual battle that can only be won through a concerted effort by all who value and respect human dignity and the moral law .
Nearly 43 million innocent lives cut short by a heinous and selfish act . 43 million !!! .
Mind boggling . God have mercy on us all.
